I had invited friends over for dinner tonight and luckily they only live a few blocks away so they were intrepid and walked over here.
I made pork ribs, using ribs from my heritage Tamworth Hog. The came out of the freezer at the beginning of the week, then on Wed, I smeared a dry rub on them and let them sit in the fridge until today. Baked in the oven for an hour, then basted with a spicy tomato sauce for another 45 min.
The ribs were served with roasted potatoes - regular and sweet. The regular potatoes (which were a pretty pink hue inside) were bought at the farmer's market and the sweet potatoes were from my garden. The other side dish was roasted green beans and garlic (my garden).
For dessert I made vanilla pudding. The milk, butter and eggs were from my dairy. Surprisingly, very few of my cookbooks had a recipe for good old fashion vanilla pudding. I don't know why I didn't look in the Joy of Cooking first because, of course, it was there. Basically mix sugar and cornstarch and milk together, cook over a double boiler until thick. Combine with 2 beaten eggs, put back on heat and cook for a couple of minutes. Take off heat, stir in some butter and vanilla. Put in a bowl, place plastic wrap right on top of pudding (this prevents a skin from forming) and cool in the fridge.
